"Truth" performance, Helen Chadwick
Workshop and performance
I'm getting braver by the minute and found myself in what turned out to be a singing workshop prior to this wonderful "Truth" performance. We were taught songs, harmonies and even Russian and managed to produce some good sounds. Have a listen. Very interesting how quickly we became friends in the group - was it because we had to trust each other eg to not hate us if we hit a bum note, and to piggy back on each other's breathing so we could keep the drone going?https://soundcloud.com/user-897778193
And then to enter the auditorium in the evening and see lots of familiar faces in amongst the seats, catching each others' eyes, and waving excitedly; we had inside knowledge about the evening's process and a shared joy of finding our voices!
I urge you to see this performance - it is touring the country into many nooks and crannies so you could be lucky. The nature of truth is examined and played with, using voice, light and choreography and runs for 1 hour and ten compelling minutes. Such talent and ingenuity, and a great message for everyone.
